This site is primarily dedicated to reviews, and film reviews in particular. My reviews probably won’t be what you’re used to in a review. I take my lead from Christopher Hitchens and others in seeing a review as an introduction to the material. This introduction may focus on the subject, author, or story and where it fails or succeeds or both. So, I hope, the review can be read on its own without having seen the book or read the movie.
What I like to do is start with a quotation from the material. It may go to the main theme or it may be representative of the level of comedy or drama in the piece. In the event that the movie, book, or whatever is absolutely terrible, it will probably be the best it had to offer. That’s kind of my perspective on things. I may not like it, but you may have so little taste that you might find something in it.
I don’t generally go in for time wasting. If I am picking a show to watch, I will have heard or believe for some other reason that it is worth while. So you shouldn’t expect any Twilight book or film reviews on this page. That said, I am open to taking requests.
Like any blogger, I would love to hear your comments on the review whether you agree, disagree, think I missed something, or whatever. I would prefer that the comment stay on the same page as the review, but I know some are less computer-canny than others. And, of course, please share.
